Max number of rows in a table

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hey I'm doing a bit of research on which database to use for a new project. And one of the factors I have to take into consideration, is that we will have some tables with a high amount of records. I originally intended to use mysql (because it's free), but I have found that it has a cap of 4.2 billion rows per table. And it is a possibility that we will exceed that number in a few of our tables. So far, from looking around here, and on the web, I've only be able to find, that is no such cap on tables in mssql, and that table sizes is only limited by available storage. The thing is, 99% of the info I found regarding tablesize limits in mysql, also stated that it was only limited by the storage size (4gb, not all available). I had to look very thouroughly to find that last 1% where someone mentioned the 4.2 bil. upper limit. I hope someone here can confirm that, there is indeed no limit on the number of records in a single table in mssql, no hidden cap, however unlikely to be an issue. I find, that there's a ton reasons to pick mssql over mysql. But this factor will be a big selling point, in convincing the higher-ups that mssql is the better choice for my project.

Using jQuery to Filter Table Rows

The project is using the .net GridView control, so I had limited control over the output HTML code. Still, I think this code can work for most tables. One thing to notice: you should use the class "filterable" on your table or on one of its parents for the code to work.
First, we need a text box:

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers in asp.net

The RadioButtonList. Very handy for inviting users to select just one item from a list although because of the screen real estate it takes up, used less and less in favour of the DropDownList. In plain HTML, the browser knows to enforce the unique selected value amongst a list of radio buttons because they all have the same value for their name attributes.

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers

(In which AJAX-enhanced CheckBoxes become more useful than RadioButtons but inheritance saves the day, and a simple RadioButton-derived control establishes the purpose of a control's naming container)

How to get column value difference of rows in same table

Dear all, I need a TSQL statement to find the difference of values of two rows in the same table, by taking into consideration some conditions. I have the following rowss in a table named table1 dbname  sqlinst     size1   ddate sqldb1    inst1        200    1/1/2009 sqldb1    inst1        250    1/1/2010 sqldb1    inst1        170    1/1/2008 sqldb2    inst2        300    1/1/2009 sqldb2    inst2        340    1/1/2010 I need to find the difference between size1 values, for columns where their dbname and sqlinst are the same. I also need to define in TSQL that the ddate of row from where I subtract (size1) from is 1/1/2010 and that the ddate of the row I subtract (size1) is 1/1/2009 (e.g. in the above example: for sqldb1 inst1, I need to perform 250-200 and ignore 170, and for sqldb2 inst2  340-300). Please let me know if you have a solution for this. A million thanks!

GridView Pager not showing proper number of rows

I have created an out-of-the-box  (default everything) ASP.NET Dynamic Data Entities Web Site using VS2010, C# and the .NET Framework 4. Created an ADO.NET Entity Data Model based off a MS SQL 2008 R2 database and registered that EF data model for my dynamic data. Everything works great except for the one change I would like to make. By default, the GridViewPager.ascx file provides the values 5, 10, 15 and 20 in the dropdown for GridView's "Results per page" option. I would like to change that to 10, 20, 30 and 40 - with 40 being the default selected option. I went to the code behind file and modified it to have the values I am wanting. Those values now show in the dropdown, and work if I select them. Problem: when the page is first rendered only 10 rows will show. How can I change this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks

Analysis Service Oracle Number inconsistent Data Type for TABLE or Named Query

Dear Gurus, I'd VERY OLD PROBLEM. And I believe it addressed since 2006. When I design DataSource Views from Oracle Data Source. I found it return different oracle number data type for TABLE or NAMED QUERY   Provider Data Type Column Data Type Data Source View Data Type Oracle OLE DB Provider (OraOLEDB.Oracle.1) Table Number System.Int64   View Number System.Decimal   Named Querey Number System.Decimal Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (MSDAORA.1) Table Number System.Double   View Number System.Double   Named Query   1 System.Int64   Named Query   1.1234 System.Int64 Althought I know I can fix IT via MANUALLY EDIT DATASOURCE VIEW XML SOURCE. But I don't think this is a better solution. Is anybody have ideas ?  Wilson

Wierd case of: Msg 213, Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition

Hi, I'm working on several triggers (that happen after insert or update) in order to log the changes in a different table. They all follow a similar syntax and are working fine, except for this one... I've reduced the next code to the minimum that gives an error, so we can safely assume the other parts of the trigger are working fine. INSERT INTO [Adt].[WardUnitStayLog] SELECT t.* FROM [Adt].[WardUnitStay] t INNER JOIN inserted i ON i.[Id] = t.[Id]; I've used this same syntax (but on different tables) in other triggers, and these are working perfectly fine. The above query provides the next error: Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition. I've checked both tables for differences in the columns, but to no avail... (I've checked them manually and by outerjoining the information_schema.columns) (I've also checked the order in wich these columns are defined, they match over the two tables) These are the creation scripts for the tables: CREATE TABLE [Adt].[WardUnitStay] ( [Id] [dbo].[Id] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL, [UnifiedUnitStayId] [dbo].[Id] NOT NULL, [WardCd] [dbo].[Cd] NOT NULL, [_FirstAtTm] [dbo].[Dtm] NOT NULL, [_IsReservation] BIT NOT NULL, [_LastAtTm] [dbo].[Dtm] NOT NULL, [_LastBedCd] [dbo].[Cd] NULL, [_LastPhysicianUid]

Creating a form with an unknown number of rows

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new at ASP .NET but not to ASP.  I've got a form I need to create where I don't know how many entries will be added.  It has the following format: "Age"             "Duration"      "Period of Duration"     "etc..." Last30Days 1-5 Months ago 6-11 Months ago Age Age Age etc. So the Age column always has the first 3 options and then an unknown number of Age values that can be inserted.  I've created a table that has the first four fields (Last30days, 1-5months, 6-11months, age)  and I was thinking I could just order by those 4 columns for display.  The problem I have is I'm not sure on how to proceed.  Does anyone have any good ideas on how to handle this situation?  Ideally data entry people could use the same form for both entering and displaying the data.  Thanks.
